A series of comedic TV advertisements featuring the winner of Miss Australia 2006, Erin McNaught, appears to be part of a new campaign to boost the promotion of Windows 7 and Windows Live 2011 in Australia.
At least three ads have been produced which star the beauty pageant winner with three less-than-desirable dates in various scenarios where Windows 7 and Windows Live has proven useful. Features shown include internet media streaming, Photo Fuse and Live Mesh.
Although these ads remind me of the show “Beauty and the Geek” (I only know of, never seen, I swear), I find them far more enjoyable than the American “To The Cloud” ads whose catchphrase annoy the hell out of me. After all, she won a beauty pageant for a reason.
